tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  August 4, 2014 1:00am-3:01am PDT

1:00 am
happening now, israel implementing a cease-fire unless hamas fires first. is there an end in site? live team coverage from the ground in gaza and jerusalem, ahead. ebola outbroke out of control in africa. this deadly virus could soon go global as one american recovered in a georgia hospital. a second soon to join him. we are live with the latest developments.
1:01 am
good morning. welcome to early start. i'm debra feyerick. >> i'm john berman. it's 4:00 a.m. in the east. we would like to welcome our viewers here in the united states and around the world. after sunday's bombing of a u.n. shelter in gaza. they called the attack disgraceful. the u.n. described it as moral outrage and criminal attack. israel is suspending their fire for a seven hour humanitarian cease-fire. john, does hamas seem to be willing to support this cease-fire? if so, what can actually be physically achieved in seven hours? >> reporter: well, at this point, hamas says they will not go along with the cease-fire. they don't trust the israelis. they believe it's an attempt to
1:02 am
divert attention away from what happened at the school. the israeli's say they were attacking three members of the jihad on a motorcycle. apparently, they passed near the front gates of the school. nine people died from shrapnel after it was fired. as for what can be done in the seven hour cease-fire, they need to get aid, tents, medical supplies into gaza and work out a way to get the water back on, fix the electricity. there's a long list. not much can be done. at least they can get the tents and emergency shelter into gaza. we know that at least according to the palestinians here, more than 10,000 homes have been destroyed in the past few weeks. also, deborah, we are hearing reports after 20 minutes after
1:03 am
the humanitarian window went into effect. we are not sure who was behind it, whether it was an israeli strike, whether it was a hamas rocket that went astray. what we are told is a home has been hit in an area known as a refugee camp. at least 30 people have been hurt, many of them, women and children. doctors are treating the wounded. we are contacting the military to see what may or may not have happened. >> who supplies the tent and food. the palestinian authority, israel, egypt, other groups? where does that come from? >> reporter: right now, i know the red cross is trying to get supplies into gaza. they had three trucks waiting at the border yesterday, trying to cross because of the ongoing fighting turned around. in the past, when they had
1:04 am
cease-fires, the israeli's sent in aid. there has been shipments from other aid organizations around the world. so, it is a multiple number of agencies and governments that try to get aid into gaza. my understanding is getting aid in here has not been a political issue, just one of safety, trying to get the trucks across the border. finally, john, israel suggesting there may be an end to the ground war in gaza. is there a suggestion of that or indication from where you are? >> reporter: yeah, certainly, apart from this incident at the camp which we are looking into, it has been very quiet, at least from where we are. we have seen the dust on the horizon as the tanks and troops are pulling back. the ground troops, many of them out and being redeployed.
1:05 am
there's still a lot of activity. israeli troops continue with the operation to find the last of the hamas tunnels and destroy them. once that is done, once the ground troops are out, as sad as it seems, it goes back to business and normal. hamas will fire their rockets and israel will go to blocking them. kind of how it was before the troops moved in. >> john in gaza, thanks so much. >> this conditional seven-hour cease-fire is supposed to be in place. as john said, it does seem that israel is redeploying ground troops in gaza. a big question now is, is israel ready to start negotiating, talking, looking for more permanent settlement here?
1:06 am
sai saima mohsin is live. >> reporter: the israelis didn't even go to cairo for those planned talks that were due to take place in the 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire that we should have had over the weekend. palestinian delegation arrived in cairo. i assume turned back. there is no talk of talks just yet until, as far as the israelis are concerned, but hamas stops firing rockets into israel. hamas says they won't stop. they have the right to defend themselves. israelis say they have the right to defend their nation. because of operation protective edge continuing, particularly the ground operation is continuing. we should point out, as well, john this morning, the precise nature of this cease-fire is controversial. first of all, it was announced unilaterally by israel. israel declared a cease-fire.
1:07 am
we understand from hamas there was no discussion or agreement from their side to it. of course, then, for want of a better word, call it a selective cease-fire or limited one. israel pointed out, this does not apply to rafah, the area we have seen so much fighting in. we have seen an escalation over the last few days here. then, israeli soldiers will not stop operating in the areas they are already in. that means there is -- there may well be fighting in the area. israel is saying they will not strike unless they are struck themselves. but, of course, if hamas doesn't agree to the cease-fire and they see this as an operation that is continuing in their territory, whether it be decommissioning the tunnels or whatever, we are likely to not see this cease-fire make it through the
1:08 am
seven hours. of course, we must remember, in all of this, it's called a humanitarian cease-fire because there are thousands of people affected by this, almost 10,000 injured that need to get medical treatment. hundreds of thousands in shelters trying to get out, get to their homes, assess the damage. john? >> saima mohsin for us. this cease-fire, at best is temporary and partial. thanks to you. the second american infected with ebola is expected to be flown to the u.s. tomorrow. officials confirm nancy writebol will leave with the medical team. she is holding her own and in good spirits. her colleague is at emory hospital. doctors insisting there was no choice but to bring the two patients back to the united states. >> most of the medical care consists of supportive care and
1:09 am
our sense is based on speaking to providers in that part of the world that, given our training, given our knowledge and our unit, we can supply that care better than can be supplied in the current environment. >> we are tracking the latest developments live from london. what are you hearing about the move to bring the people back and what that suggests for other who is may become infected? >> good morning, deborah. we hear a specialized air ambulance made its way to liberia to pick up nancy writebol. it's a similar set up we saw with dr. kent brantly. the flight is expected to land some time tuesday. we haven't been given the specifics so far. she would join dr. kent brantly at emory university hospital. we saw the images over the weekend of the doctor arriving back in an ambulance. we saw someone in a white suit
1:10 am
walking out. the first tentative steps. we were told dr. kent brantly kind of walked into the hospital. we assume the pictures we have been looking at is the doctor. we are told he's in good spirits. he was able to speak to his wife for 45 minutes through a glass wall. she said, i'm quoting him, he's in great spirits and so grateful. the doctors, meanwhile, saying he was able to talk and converse. we have heard he's been given an experimental serum before leaving liberia. we don't know the details. it's very encouraging signs. doctors at emory hospital are cautiously optimistic they can have a good -- both cases have a good chance of recovery. emory hospital has fantastic capabilities.
1:11 am
they have treated sars previously. they have to have a special system that doesn't affect the rest of the hospital. they have an intensive care unit where basically it's isolated from the hospital and they have experts in this field that really rival many other countries. they are in good hands and for now, at least, it looks as though both are sharing positive signs. deborah? >> clearly, he's the first known patient with ebola to be treated in the u.s. with this experimental serum. there's talk of a vaccine some time soon. thank you so much. doctors who treated ebola patients in west africa placed himself in quarantine inside his own home. he worked in the hospital dr. kent brantly contracted ebola. he's showing no symptoms, but plans to remain in isolation for 21 days.
1:12 am
>> becoming greater and greater. the concern is if i were to contract the infection while i was there, i would not have the facilities available for a better level of treatment that are available in the united states. >> he's been kwquarantined sinc july 26th. he has not had contact with anyone else since. president obama is getting set to welcome african leaders to washington for a three-day summit. it's to get big american companies to have larger roles in america. the backdrop of growing problems in african nations including gains in nigeria and the ebola outbreak. we have new developments for people in the midwest. tap water ban in parts of ohio. toxic algae poisoning the water

1:19 am
and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

1:24 am
were victim's belongings. they will be sent on a future flight back to the netherlands. as for the search, they are going to be heading out to the scene today. there is fighting, as you say, on the perimeter of the cease-fire zone where they are operating. difficult circumstances. the priority still is to find remains. they didn't find any yesterday, just belongings. there is concern there could be remains under the debris at the scene. that's going to require more sophisticated equipment. a difficult task for the experts working under extraordinary circumstances. >> what is the status of the conflict now? there was the sense the military was consolidating some of its gains. >> reporter: yes, the ukrainian military is making progress in recent days in gaining rebel held territory t. focus, really, is cutting off aid, a corridor
1:25 am
between the main rebel centers in donetsk and kharkiv. they need to cut tauf corridor, where they claim russia has been supplying weapons to the rebels. of course, moscow denies that. yes, the fighting continues around the city of donetsk and the experts suggest they need to get the job done as soon as possible. it's not going to take days, it's going to take weeks to do their job at the crash scene. >> kellie, thanks so much. royalty and world leaders gathering to commemorate the start of warorld war i. the fierce conflict brought britain into the war. today's ceremony, belgium's king felipe will speak. it can the war to end all wars. >> we thought. happening now, israel

happening now, israel
1:30 am
promising to cease-fire in most of gaza for this morning, at least, unless hamas fires first. this possible pause in the violence promised one day after another u.n. school in gaza is hit. we are live in gaza and jerusalem with what's happening this morning. ebola outbreak. the virus rapidly spreading across africa expected to go global. this, as one american gets treated here in the united states with another soon to join him. can anything be done to stop this outbreak? we are live. welcome back to "early start" i'm deborah feyerick in for christine romans. >> i'm john berman. we want to welcome all our viewers in the united states and around the world. we begin with the outrage directed at israel after the bombing of a u.n. shelter in gaza left ten people dead. the state department, the u.s.
1:31 am
state department called it disgraceful. united nations described it as a moral outrage and criminal act. israel is opening a seven hour humanitarian window for a cease-fire. it started one hour ago. john voss begins the coverage live from gaza. john, first off, what is the status of the fighting this morning. has it been quiet as we are a few minutes now into this partial cease-fire? >> reporter: you know, so far, so good. what we are hearing from the idf is the israeli defense forces is that hamas, since the humanitarian window went into effect has not fired rockets from gaza into israel. there is still israeli operations ongoing especially in the south. israel said that would continue, that is not part of this humanitarian window. there has been a report that maybe, maybe there was an israeli strike 20 minutes into
1:32 am
this window. we don't know. there was an explosion and strike here in gaza city that left 30 people wounded. we are checking that. for the most part, it does seem to be relatively quiet here right now. that will allow aid to come across the border. they tried to do it yesterday, but because of the fighting, the trucks turned back. hopefully in the next couple hours, they will bring temporary shelters, food, water. all these things are very much in short supply. john? >> i'm sure it's welcome for the people of gaza after all this conflict. it comes amid an unusual condemnation for israel's actions and the u.n. facility that was hit in rafah. >> reporter: yeah. what we are hearing from around the world and especially from the united states, really slamming the israelis over what appears to have been another school in the firing line. this one down in rafah.
1:33 am
what we are hearing now is that there is another investigation being carried out by the u.n. into a hit on another u.n. run store used as a shelter. it was in a refugee camp on wednesday. the u.n. did a preliminary investigation and looked at shrapnel from the scene. that school was hit by at least ten rounds of artillery, not a weapon. that left at least 20 palestinians dead. the israelis, at the time, said their troops were in the area, hamas was near the school. they opened fire and israeli's responded to that. the findings that the school was hit by ten rounds of artillery combined with what happened in rafah yesterday outside the school leaving nine dead, the
1:34 am
pressure is mounting right now. >> thanks so much. as the quiet, more or less being maintained right now. right now, israel is 90 minutes into a conditional cease-fire. it appears to be reshuffling ground troops, pulling them back to the border. palestinians can return north. is israel moving closer to ending the fighting and perhaps starting peace talks. if so, will it be with hamas? live from jerusalem this morning. in terms of israel saying it is going to begin wrapping up its ground war there, what are you hearing? >> reporter: good morning, deborah. i spoke to one of the spokesmen for the israeli government. he was saying to me that this is not a drawdown. this is not a withdrawal. the operation is still very much active and as we heard from prime minister benjamin netanyahu over the weekend, he said we will advance with full
1:35 am
power. this is far from over yet. on sunday, as well, one of the representatives told cnn that he saw no end in site to the operation. what is happening on the ground as far as the troops are concerned is they are being redeployed, moved to different areas. once they carried out the work on various tunnels that hamas built, they moved to other areas. yes, some of the troops have been taken out that have been in for quite some time. others are redeployed, some going in. in terms of numbers, we are not clear in terms of how many are in the gaza strip and operating there. as far as the cease-fire is concerned, it's pretty much a selective cease-fire. those troops that are in gaza strip and operating wherever they were pre-10:00 a.m. this morning when the cease-fire started, they will continue to
1:36 am
operate as far as the israeli statement is concerned. this was a unilaterally announced cease-fire. the troops where they are operating will continue and the cease-fire does not apply to rafah where we have seen so much terrible fighting and death and destruction, including that u.n. school as well. so, there is still some operational activity going on despite this announced humanitarian cease-fire. deborah? >> it's not a drawdown. it's not a withdrawal. both sides are arguing that this is all about the right of self-defense. is anyone talking to each other? are there back door negotiations? is anything happening anywhere? >> reporter: well, of course they are not willing, on record, to tell us they are talking. what we know, during all these conflicts is there are back channel negotiations. there are people that try to reach out to both sides, try to get them to the table, mainly
1:37 am
countries like jordan, ka tar, egypt as well, which was supposed to host the talks over the weekend in cairo. of course, that didn't take place. the cease-fire was broken down just an hour and a half into the 72-hour cease-fire on friday. so, the talks have broken down. we are not seeing a sign they are willing to come back to the table to talk. all the while, international condemnation and pressure growing. we have seen the united states coming up with its most strongly worded statement, yet. as you said coming to us here, saying it was appalled by the disgraceful attack on that u.n. shelter, which housed 3,000 people. a lot of condemnation. it also said, look, we understand israel's right to self-defend, but what we do not say is that any suspicion of militant activity justifies
1:38 am
targeting innocent civilians in huge numbers. i suspect this international condemnation put pressure on israel and perhaps the other side that we are not hearing just yet. they need to talk and they need to bring an end to this conflict. >> no question. the world clearly is watching all of this very, very closely thank you so much for joining us. 38 minutes after the hour. a second american infected with ebola is expected to be flown to the united states tomorrow. nancy writebol will depart with a medical evacuation team. she is said to be holding her own and in good spirits. her colleague is receiving treatment at emory hospital. his condition is improving. doctors insist there was no choice but to bring them back to the united states. >> most of the medical care consists of supportive care and our sense is, based on speaking to providers in that part of the
1:39 am
world that given our training, given our knowledge, given our unit, we can supply that supportive care much better than can be supplied in their current environment. >> we are tracking the developments live from london. one of the patients here in the united states already. another one on the way. >> reporter: indeed, john. good morning. we know special ilzed air ambulance with an isolation unit already departed the u.s. to go and pick up nancy writebol from liberia. she's the second u.s. citizen infected with the ebola virus. nancy and dr. kent were affected in liberia. nancy will join dr. kent at emory university hospital. we saw him arrive over the weekend. he was transported by an ambulance. we were told from the doctors at the hospital he was the first one to walk on his own accord into emory university hospital. doctors told cnn he's
1:40 am
conversing, he's getting up and talking. he's showing good signs of recovery. now, we also know his wife visited him for a period of 45 minutes or so and they spoke via glass. of course, they can't have physical contact. his wife told cnn he is in great spirits and he is so grateful. the center for disease control said this is showing good signs for recovery and we learned he has received what they are calling an experimental serum before leaving siberia. all the encouraging signs and the doctors believing, cautiously optimistic that they can make a good recovery. john? >> this is unprecedented for both patients. good news they are making progress at all. thanks so much. happening right now, a big story in the midwest. tap water ban for 500,000 people. no end in site this morning.

devastation in southern china leaves 281 people killed by a powerful earthquake sunday. more than 1800 people injured. officials are now looking frantically for survivors in the rubble of 12,000 home that is simply collapsed. rain and thunderstorms complicating efforts to bring in tents, water and food for survivors. iraq's largest dam and a key oil field in control of sunni militants. they seized three more towns over the weekend. by taking over the mosul dam, they have the ability to flood major cities or with hold water from major cities. this is in the bid to top it will shiite led government in baghdad. "early start" continues right now. happening this morning, the
2:00 am
very latest on the partial, temporary, conditional cease-fire in gaza. is it holding? moments ago, refugee camp hit by an air strike. reports of 15 people injured. is there any end in site to the violence there? we have live team coverage from the ground in gaza and jerusalem, just ahead. ebola outbreak out of control in western africa. health officials warning the virus could go global. this, as one infected american recovers in a georgia hospital. a second patient soon to join him. we are live with the latest developments. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm deborah feyerick in for christine romans. >> i'm john berman. accused of carrying out on air strike in a refugee camp that happened an hour ago.
2:01 am
there is international outrage directed at israel after sunday's deadly bombing of a u.n. shelter in gaza. it left ten people dead. the state department called the attack disgraceful. the united nations describing it as a moral outrage. israel announced a seven hour humanitarian cease-fire. it started about two hours ago. we want to go now live to the ground in gaza. john vause, there are reports of another bombing this morning. >> reporter: that's right. we are told by palestinian officials there was a house in the refugee camp, the palestinians are saying it was hit by an israeli air strike. they are saying at least 30 people have been wounded. they are not confirming a death toll. they are searching beneath the rubble and debris of the house. anybody that may have been killed or wounded. we have tried to get comment from the idf, israel defense
2:02 am
force of what may or may not have happened. they stay cease-fire has not been violated and they are investigating what may or may not have happened at the camp. one possibility, it could have been a palestinian-hamas rocket that misfired. this happens 20 minutes into the humanitarian window. a short time ago, to the south, there was a large explosion. we are in gaza city. down south in rafah, many, many miles here, they are continuing with the military operation. this operation seemed closer to us. the israelis said their military operations will continue in those areas where it continues to work to destroy this hamas tunnel network. i guess, also, where they are actively operating which could mean where they have the troops continuing to move back to the border. there has been an explosion to the south and we are looking at this air strike on a house here in gaza city, john?
2:03 am
>> any rockets, so far, that you can tell shot out of gaza by hamas toward israel this morning, john? >> reporter: nothing. nothing so far. this has been confirmed. last night, we checked on the israeli side as well. the moment the humanitarian window went into effect, the rockets stopped firing. hamas said that they are not part of the cease-fire, has nothing to do with it, they reject it, they don't trust the israelis, it's an attempt to divert attention from what happened in rafah sunday when nine palestinians were killed at a u.n. school at a refugee center. for now, they are holding their fire. this is a good sign. it means that at least there can be a period of calm to allow emergency relief into gaza. the circumstances are dire. >> the conditions where things don't escalate further. john vause in gaza, thanks so
2:04 am
much. right now, israel appears to be redeploying ground troops in and around gaza. they are not withdrawaling. they are not deescalating their offensive as they go after the underground tunnels. saima mohsin live from jerusalem this morning. there was a seven-hour humanitarian cease-fire to get the relief supplies in, but at the same time, the fighting continues. where is the balance? >> reporter: well, it's a difficult one depending on which side you are standing on. it's hard to differentiate where there is a cease-fire and where there isn't, really. that's the facts. israel said that there is a cease-fire in place. it's a humanitarian cease-fire as john vause said, it's much needed there. at the same time, it's selective in nature. that means israeli troops, where are they are in the gaza strip
2:05 am
will carry on operating. whether that means detonating and decommissioning the tunnels or engaging in fighting, we are not clear on that. they said this cease-fire does not apply to rafah. rafah is the place where we saw the attack on the u.n. shelter which killed at least nine people, injuring dozens of others receiving condemnation. this cease-fire may be in place, it should go on for seven hours, but it is selective in nature. perhaps the people most affected are the people where the ground troops are operating. deborah? >> it's interesting, saima, there are supposed to be talks in egypt. at leastingly enough, hamas and israel are doing what their people are asking them to do, which is continue. they have a lot of political support on both sides, it would appear. >> reporter: there's a huge contrast in domestic support
2:06 am
versus international condemnation. hamas and i think as we have been reporting over the last few days, increasing support from people within gaza. hamas doesn't represent all in gaza, a lot of people are -- my colleagues are reporting they have been talking to people saying we are continuely being pounded. we have seen 1,815 people killed. that's the latest data here in jerusalem from those killed. 9,400 injured. there's almost a resolve as far as the gaza strip is concerned. this is it now. one way or another, this should determine our fate. on the israeli side, they continue to say we have the right to defend ourselves and we will carry on. benjamin netanyahu, over the weekend saying he will plow on in full power. another idea telling cnn he saw no end in site based on ground realities. this could go either way. we are seeing polls run by
2:07 am
various media outlets polling people here in israel. in fact, in one poll, they said they completely backed prime minister benjamin netanyahu, they support operation protective edge. they also said in answer to another question, they want to see an escalation in fighting rather than a draw down or backing down. that's why, perhaps, we are seeing so much pressure domestically for this to continue where as that's in contrast with the international condemnation. the united states, the closest ally of israel coming out with that statement from the department of state saying that it was appalled by the disgraceful shunning of the u.n. shelter that houses 3,000 displaced people. there are more than 200,000 displaced people across the gaza strip living in u.n. shelters. another 200,000 spread out trying to get to areas which are relatively safe.
2:08 am
deborah? >> saima mohsin, it appears president abbas from the palestinian authority gets involved. whether there can be a palestinian unity government will certainly be something everybody is watching. thank you so much, saima. a second american infected with ebola expected to be flown here to the united states tomorrow. officials confirm nancy writebol will depart with a team. she's said to be holding her own and in good spirits. her colleague, dr. brantly is already receiving treatment in emory hospital. his condition is improving. doctors insist there was no choice but to bring the patients back to the united states. >> most of the medical care consists of support and our senses, based on speaking to providers in that part of the world that given our training, given our knowledge, given our
2:09 am
unit, we can supply that care much better than can be supplied in their current environment. >> we are tracking the developments live from london. really complicated and unprecedented, the scope of this effort. >> reporter: absolutely, john. we have heard the u.s., the american citizen is going to arrive sometime on tuesday. we heard specialized air ambulance with an isolation unit already left on sunday. in fact, to pick up nancy writebol from liberia. nancy and dr. kent infected in liberia. nancy was an aid worker out there. she will join dr. kent at emory university hospital. he was transported by an ambulance saturday. we saw him taking a couple initial steps into the university hospital. doctors said it was him who took the first steps, it was his
2:10 am
decision. they said he's talking, getting up, making conversation. all very encouraging signs. we have learned that he has received an experimental serum. we know little about it. he received the serum before leaving liberia. he's spoken to his wife for a period of 45 minutes. goes to show how well he's doing. they spoke via glass wall. she said he was in good spirits and very, very grateful. all very encouraging signs. meanwhile, john, you know, the scale of ebola is growing at a fast pace. we have seen the numbers in guinea drop and the numbers in liberia increasing. the government is trying to stem it. we heard overnight, the government deployed over 750 infantry personnel.
2:11 am
they can increase the operation at check point where is the medical teams are going into the small towns to educate people about ebola to contain it. struggling to contain this killer virus. >> great point. the encouraging news about these americans should not mask the overwhelming nature of this outbreak in africa and the efforts to fight it. >> thanks so much. you have to wonder if u.s. doctors can, perhaps, create a protocol for treating ebola that can be transferred to west africa. a tennessee doctor that did treat it placed himself in quarantine in his own home. he worked where dr. kent brantly contracted it. he's not showing symptoms but plans to remain in isolation for the next three weeks. >> becoming greater and greater.
2:12 am
the concern is if i were to contract the infection while i was there, i would not have the facilities available for a better level of treatment that is available in the united states. >> he's kept himself quarantined since july 25th. he admits he came in contact with his daughter when she picked him up at the airport. claims he's had no contact with anyone else since. president obama is getting set to welcome african leaders for a three-day summit. the meeting comes despite the backdrop of problems in african nations, which forlsed leaders of liberia to cancel thinker trip to the united states. happening now, a tap water ban in parts of ohio. this is a big story, folks. toxic algae. algae bloom poisoning the water

right now, 400,000 residents of toledo, ohio are waiting to hear when they can drink their tap water again. overnight test results are in and the ban remains in place. the trouble began on friday when an algae was found in lake erie where the water supplies originates. >> you can't treat it from the lake. they have to find a way to treat it once it gets into the inlets. that is where the issue is coming in. how do they get it out? as you know, you can't boil it or put too toxic of a chemical
2:17 am
in to treat it. then you have another problem. >> stores quickly sold out of bottled water after the announcement. public schools decided to cancel athletic practices and summer meal practices for today. >> algae bloom. a suspected murderer on cnns "the hunt" found dead. he's suspected in the death of his wife and two young daughters. his remains found not far from his truck. this is the second death in as many weeks involving the suspects featured. >> he's been out there over a year. the shasta county sheriff and the u.s. marshalls who were part of this manhunt said we have identified him by dental records. it's shane miller. the body is decomposed, but he add id on it. again, it's just wonderful. he was the first guy i profiled

2:19 am
california. a lot of location where is the campgrounds are are below steep canyons. even if it's sunny above you or rains here or 50 miles away, the water comes down the canyon sides. that's the reason you are talking the heavy flow that typically occurs in this region. the good news, yes, there's flooding, but not that n that region. the trough is lifting out of the region a. huge portion of the southwest dealing with flooding today as the monsoonal moisture hangs in place. the east coast, look at this. the frontal boundary still in place here and then we have bertha, in addition. we are talking a lot of rain in the southeast today. looking for a little combination. tropical storm bertha strengthening up to 70 miles per hour. 74 miles per hour is what is going to make it a category one her honor. the combination will bring the heavy rain into the southeast. most from the frontal boundary.
2:20 am
keep in mind, as long as it hangs off the coastline, we are monitoring this. it will strengthen. we are looking for it to become a category one her honor off the carolinas. it is still expected to stay offshore. it is very important staying away from the u.s. coastline. >> keep it offshore. well done, appreciate it. coming up for us, a set back for tiger woods. he walked off the course really, limped off with a back injury. the question is, will he be able to compete in the last slam? or the ryder cup? we have the latest on the breacher report, next.

happening now, israel promising to cease-fire in gaza this morning, but, well, it may already be over. an hour ago, a refugee camp was reportedly hit by an air strike, dozens injured. we are live with what's happening now. ebola outbreak, the virus rapidly spreading, expected to go global. this as one infected american
2:31 am
gets treatment here in the united states. another soon to join him. what is the status of the outbreak? we are live with the latest. welcome back to "early start." great to see you this morning. i'm john berman. >> i'm deborah feyerick in for christine romans. it is 30 minutes past the hour. after a violent, bloody weekend, israel is accused of violating its own cease-fire with an air strike on a gaza refugee camp. the israelis have been the target of international outrage of sunday's deadly bombing in the u.n. shelter that left ten dead in gaza. the u.s. state department called the attack disgraceful. the u.n. went a step further describing it as a moral outrage and criminal act. israel is suspending most of its fire, opening what they call a seven hour humanitarian window. john vause covers it from gaza. it appears the israelis want
2:32 am
relief agencies to bring food in, but don't want to suspend military operations in that area. is that sort of -- is that correct? >> reporter: yeah. that's pretty much it, deborah. we have a situation with the israeli's. they recognize this is a dire situation which is getting worse by the day here in gaza. relief trucks tried to cross from israel to gaza. they couldn't get in because of the ongoing fighting. now the window is open. the trucks are coming across the border. they want to continue destroying the hamas tunnels. they want to get in and out as soon as they can. the soldiers inside gaza, they are targets of hamas militants. most of that work is heading toward rafah, the southern part of gaza where the school was hit sunday. certainly, outside the school
2:33 am
was hit by a missile and ended up with shrapnel flying everywhere killing nine palestinians according to gaza health officials here. the military operations continue on. at this point, hamas says they are not going to honor the cease-fire. it seems as if they have resumed their rocket fire. sirens have been heard in the southern part of israel. they have been pretty quiet once this humanitarian window came into effect. the rockets fired in the last few moments. israel says since midnight, they have fired 23 rockets into israel. deborah? >> we'll see where the humanitarian aid goes. hopefully it's going to the people who need it so desperately right now. thanks so much. >> john was talking about the idea of rockets going out of hamas in gaza into israel. this, about two hours into this partial, conditional, temporary cease-fire that israel did
2:34 am
declare. meanwhile, they appear to deploy ground troops. they insist it's not a drawdown, just a reemployment. sarah joins us live from the israel/gaza border. >> are you seeing any of the rockets john was talking about? >> reporter: no. we are in an area that has not had any sirens since the israeli called for cease-fire happened. we know there have been three sirens that have gone off. the only thing we heard was this morning before they called for a cease-fire at 10:00 a.m. 6:45, over the hotel, they took out one of the rockets that was fired. there were 20 or so rockets fired before the cease-fire was called for. hamas said they are not going to recognize this cease-fire. however, this is the quietest it's been for the past couple hours before the sirens went off that we have seen in the past
2:35 am
few weeks here. it has really been, there's a lot of fighting yesterday, the sound of a lot of rockets, 119 rockets fired from gaza toward israel. but, hamas pointing out and the palestinian health ministry, there was a strike at 10:20, 20 minutes after the cease-fire was called for by israel and they blame israel for it. we talked to the idf, they are not confirming it was them responsible for the strike. they are looking into it at this hour. >> we are seeing information israelis claiming the leader of islamic jihad was killed or targeted in some of the strikes. while this is happening, there is a redeployment of israeli troops inside gaza. a lot of tanks and personnel moving out or at least to the outskirts, it seems. >> reporter: right. in some areas, the israeli military saying they were moving some troops in some areas, telling residents they can go
2:36 am
back to the areas. i can tell you what we have seen. tanks and troops, actually moving arnds. they wouldn't say they were leaving the area, but from the border back a bit. it may be they are reshuffling and changing guards, but we have seen movement on the border of troops. others reporting inside gaza, there's been movement there, away from certain areas where residents are told they can go back. still pounding away at rafah especially overnight. we heard quite a bit of that. >> you are on the border mentioning it is the quietest you have seen it in several weeks. sara sidner on the border, we appreciate it. a second american infected with ebola is set to be flown to the u.s. tomorrow. nancy writebol will depart with a medical evacuation team. she is holding her own and in
2:37 am
goods spirits. her colleague is receiving treatment at emory university hospital. his condition is described as improving. doctors saying there was no choice but to bring the two patients back to the united states. >> most of the medical care consists of supportive care and our sense is, based on speaking to providers in that part of the world that given our training, given our knowledge, given our unit, we can supply that supportive care much better than can be supplied in their current environment. >> we are tracking the latest developments live from london. the doctors are going to try an experimental serum. is this something that could be applied in a larger way, if it does work on these two patients? >> reporter: yeah. we heard overnight, really, deborah, that we heard from dr. kent. he received this experimental serum before coming to the u.s.
2:38 am
in liberia. we haven't heard whether the aid worker, nancy writebol received it. what we have heard from doctors is both nancy and dr. kent are showing positive, encouraging signs. they are cautiously optimistic about their recovery. nancy is expected to arrive tuesday in the u.s. she will be joined and going to emory university hospital alongside her colleague. we know dr. kent brantly has been making a good recovery. the doctors say he's been working, conversing. his wife said he was in very good spirits and very grateful. he is cautiously optimistic about his recovery. meanwhile, in west africa, we are seeing governments struggle to stem this deadly virus that
2:39 am
is growing faster than you can control it. governments trying to do whatever they can. overnight, we heard they have declared the day reflection and prayer, telling people not to leave their homes and stay at home, not fo go to work, stay at home with their families. they have deployed 750 military and medical teams. the military will go to bolster the check points they have in place. medical teams will go to the villages that have been infected to educate them about the virus, trying to contain it. it really goes to show how hard it is to contain the virus when you have poor medical infrastructure and people who are not -- that don't accept the western way, the western medicine and families burying the dead, you know, by touching them. trying to control this is a very, very big challenge. deborah? >> the only way they appear to
2:40 am
do it is isolation and quarantine. it will be interesting to see if the serum has positive outcomes and if it can be applied. thank you so much. happening now, a tough water ban for 500,000 people with no end in site. new developments coming up ahead. a deadly mudslide in california leaving hundreds stranded. we have incredible video after the break. at humana, we believe if healthcare changes, if it becomes simpler... if frustration and paperwork decrease... if grandparents get to live at home instead of in a home... the gap begins to close. so let's simplify things. let's close the gap between people and care. ♪ let's close the gap between people and care.

2:46 am
mudslides like this. it takes one heavy thunderstorm and all the rain comes down the steep canyons and brings in the torrential mudslides they are familiar with. they see it every year and takes campers by surprise. whether you are here and 50 miles away you get the rain, it comes down the hillside into the region. the good news, seeing the low that brings the moisture out of the region. they get a bit of a breather to try to clean up the site. otherwise, across the country, that is not the case. into the southeast, talk about tons of moisture. we are talking the same frontal boundary in the southeast and we still have bertha, which is actually strengthening out there. likely to be a hurricane overnight tonight. right now, seeing 70-mile-per-hour steady winds. again, as we look at the projected path, it will strengthen off the carolinas into the category one her honur. it is going to go offshore. all models are in agreement,
